Melted Mirror

Calgary’s Chris Zajko is perhaps best known as a local post-punk visionary, fronting the legendary Sharp Ends and, more recently, The Soft Option. While previously contributing mostly vocals, Zajko’s latest contribution is a change in direction and input from its predecessors. Collaborating closely with local mainstays Cian Haley (Catholic Girls) on lead synth and Jeebs Nabil (Memo/Violence) on guitar, the neon pink ’80s electronic project fronts Zajko once again with a upbeat dance vibe that is simultaneously menacing.

“I had more ideas that were in a different vain: more electronic based,” says Zajko. “That’s where the Melted Mirror thing came from. I was doing solo demos on my computer and I sent the demos to Cian because he was curious and wanted to get involved. [Adding Jeebs] was an intuitive decision. We both felt the sound needed something more. Jeebs jammed with us and we really loved what he came up with.”

As a young band, Melted Mirror have released four tracks online, with a six-track EP to be released in the fall. Delay-drenched guitars compliment atmospheric vintage synths, with Zajko’s vocals placing Ian Curtis in the mid-80s. The album artwork reflects the tone of the music with dark imagery overlaid with bright overtones.
